Salam alejkum

I am french, and i dont know good english.
Can you please translate this text PLEASE:)

Les 3 hommes les plus riches au monde possèdent plus d'argent que les 48 pays les plus pauvres réunis.
Parmi les 4.4 Milliards de gens qui vivent dans les pays en voie de développement :

3/5 n'ont pas accès à une hygiène correcte,
1/3 n'ont pas d'eau potable,
1/4 n'ont pas d'habitation correcte,
1/5 n'ont pas accès à la médecine moderne,
1/5 des enfants ne dépassent pas la 5ème année d'école,
et 1/5 sont atteints de malnutrition.

Alors que 6 Milliards de dollars par an suffiraient à créer un système d'éducation pour tous, chaque année 8 Milliards de dollars sont dépensés aux Etats Unis pour les cosmétiques.


Alors que 9 Milliards de dollars suffiraient pour l'installation de réseaux d'eau potable et d'eaux usées pour tous, chaque année 11 Milliards de dollars sont dépensés en crèmes glacées en Europe.


Alors que 12 Milliards de dollars par an suffiraient pour s'occuper des problèmes de santé des femmes enceintes de par le monde, chaque année 12 Milliards de dollars sont dépensés en parfums en Europe et aux Etats-Unis.


Alors que 13 Milliards de dollars suffiraient pour avoir des soins médicaux de base dans le monde, chaque année :

17 Milliards de dollars sont dépensés dans la nourriture pour chiens et chats en Europe et aux Etats-Unis,
35 Milliards de dollars sont dépensés pour les divertissemnts au Japon seulement,
50 Milliards de dollars sont dépensés dans le tabac en Europe,
105 Milliards de dollars sont dépensés dans l'alcool en Europe,
400 Milliards de dollars sont dépensés dans la drogue dans le monde,
et 780 Milliards de dollars sont dépensés dans les armes.

Among the 4.4 Billion people who live in the countries in the process of development: 3/5 do not have access to a correct hygiene, 1/3 do not have drinking water, 1/4 do not have a correct dwelling, 1/5 do not have access to modern medicine, 1/5 of the children do not exceed the 5th year of school, and 1/5 are reached of malnutrition. Whereas 6 Billion dollars per annum would be enough to create a system of education for all, each year 8 Billion dollars are spent in the United States for the cosmetics. Whereas 9 Billion dollars would be enough for the installation to drinkable water and water supply networks used for all, each year 11 Billion dollars are spent in dairy ice creams in Europe. Whereas 12 Billion dollars per annum would be enough to be occupied of the problems of health of the pregnant women all over the world, each year 12 Billion dollars are spent in perfumes in Europe and in the United States. Whereas 13 Billion dollars would be enough to have basic medical care in the world, each year: 17 Billion dollars are spent in food for dogs and cats in Europe and in the United States, 35 Billion dollars are spent for the divertissemnts in Japan only, 50 Billion dollars are spent in the tobacco in Europe, 105 Billion dollars are spent in alcohol in Europe, 400 Billion dollars are spent in drug in the world, and 780 Billion dollars are spent in the weapons.
